butterfly dancer

i seem to be on a theme this month with my butterflies
so here is another play with my butterfly punches.
this one was for the creative crew
to celebrate your best friend on a scrapbook page or by making a gift for them. 
this is a gift for a friend going through a lot at the moment and she loves butterflies
and pink ones as well....
i was inspired by a picture i pinned on my pinterest boards and changed it a bit to suit what i wanted and the materials i was using
 her hair was made using caramel card stock and then drawing strands of hair using a variety of oranges, browns, white gel pen, gold and kindy glitz
i also layered the card to give it some extra dimension
 flowers were done using white embossing powder stamped using a tiny flower from a new set from the new 2014/15 catalogue
 skin was done using light pinks sponged on lightly.
dress was melon mambo sponged with mambo and white
 background was sponged using a variety of blue and green inks layered from light to dark on a soft sky 12x12" card stock

butterflies were stuck on with dimensionals with 1 wing up with kindy glitz to give more 3d effect.
the butterflies on the dress were quite hard to position and most are stuck down just using snail but some are stuck using glue dots.
here is my feline "helper" checking my stuff out while i am attempting to take a photo. she was rather bemused by the butterflies and tried to eat some of them before she was very unceremoniously shooed from the table...much to ehr disgust lololol

cheers ears

Love the kitty picture! I love it when they have to check out our work to see if we did okay. and, sometimes checking the progress as you are making it.
